Hospital Board Temporarily Resolves Ambulance Shortage

After learning a prospective grant will not be available until later this summer, the Scotland County Memorial Hospital (SCMH) Board of Directors voted to spend approximately $3,500 to have the transmission replaced on the hospital's secondary ambulance.

The board had initially tabled the issue until the administration could contact the Missouri Foundation for Health regarding a grant proposal that would fund two new ambulances for SCMH.

MHF representatives indicated the next round of grants likely would be announced in June.

With only one ambulance in service, the board voted to repair the secondary ambulance as a stopgap until the grant issue is finalized.

If the grant is not approved the hospital will have to seek alternative funding to purchase a new ambulance. The secondary unit has more than 165,000 miles and has experienced transmission issues previously meaning it has little if any trade-in value.

The hospital does maintain the old van-style ambulance as a third unit for emergency situations but the condition and age of the unit prevent it from being used on a regular basis.
